My FoodSaver of 3 years just gave out on me. I bought the FoodSaver 2440 (i think that is the number) at Fred Meyers and I have to say it's vacuum isn't that great, worse then the one that just broke. I returned it. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good food vacu-sealer? I saw some sold by Cabela's. The new one I bought and returned recently was $139. I would like to stay around $150 but am willing to pay more for something that will last a long time. Over 3 years I used it a moderate amount for salmon, but nothing excessive. The heating element gave out on that one. Thanks!
